Floppy Emu “Scratch and Dent” Sale

Sometimes a Floppy Emu board fails one of my functional tests, and I can’t find the cause of the problem. I have several boards that appear to work fine for 400K and 800K disk emulation (tested on a Mac Plus and Mac 512K), but that don’t work reliably for 1.4MB disk emulation on newer Macs. Instead of throwing these in the trash, I’ve decided to sell the “scratch and dent” boards for $15.

If you’ve got a Mac 512K, Plus, or older Mac SE that only supports 400K and 800K disks, one of these boards might work well for you. Because the boards failed some of the functional tests, there’s definitely a problem with them, so keep that in mind when deciding between these and the regular Floppy Emu boards. Scratch and dent boards are warranted for 400K and 800K operation for 30 days. The 1.4MB emulation on these boards isn’t guaranteed to work, but maybe you’ll get lucky. 🙂

These Floppy Emu boards have a built-in connector, and are physically identical to those that normally sell for $89.
Update: The scratch and dent boards have all been sold. Thanks for the interest!
